Wanderer Above The Sea Of Fog, 1818

Watsof

Caspar David Friedrich.

By 1820, he was living as a recluse and was described by friends as the “most solitary of the solitary”.  Towards the end of his life he lived in relative poverty and was increasingly dependent on the charity of friends. He became isolated and spent long periods of the day and night walking alone through woods and fields, often beginning his strolls before sunrise.
